Welcome to Rapid Research!

To celebrate Research Week @ UTAS, all Launceston Campus postgraduates and staff are invited to present their research in a punchy, engaging, exciting and entertaining presentation!  Following the feedback from last year’s Rapid Research, we would like to open this event up to all staff on campus. Who is superior at presenting their research: staff or postgraduates?

Participants will have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their current research and its significance. 3 Minute Thesis (3MT), is not an exercise in trivialising or ‘dumbing-down’ research but forces researchers to consolidate their ideas and crystalise their research discoveries.

While the 3MT is a national formal competition, this event will be informal and all in the name of good fun. It will promise to be an entertaining afternoon full of interesting facts, laughter, and socializing with the fellow researchers on campus.

What do you need to do? Register your interest to attend and present! Visit our blog at and click on the tab to register for Rapid Research by 5pm Monday 18th June. For catering purposes, please register your interest to attend, even if you do not want to present on the day.

UTAS staff and students are invited to attend.
